26: A Journal of Poetry and Poetics has been appearing out of the Bay Area over the past several years, a dense amalgam of poetry, essays in poetics and other writings, with its 5th issue ("E") due this April. Tonight we'll feature all of the magazine's poet/co-editors reading from their own writings, along with selections from the magazine that they've each found most generative and exceptional. This newest thick issue of 26 will feature a focus on poetry in translation and include a great deal of creative work ranging from contemporary Portuguese to Chinese poetry. On stage this evening will be Avery E.D. Burns, Joseph Noble, Elizabeth Robinson and Brian Strang.
